  • Waswaas about committing Kufr I‘raadh Date: 1-1-2018

    I have read somewhere:Kufr (disbelief) of I‘raadh (turning away from the truth):when a person has a doubt and is able to learn and find out the truth yet he is satisfied with what he is upon and does not seek the truth. What does it mean exactly? Does it mean that whenever a person has a doubt or is unaware of a ruling or has doubt about Kufr,.. More

  • Calling person ‘Khoda’ ('Allah' in Urdu) Date: 31-12-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. A girl who loves me very much said that I am her Khoda (which we use for 'Allah' in Urdu). Here, the problem is not whether Khoda is the name of Allah or not, but the problem is that when we say Khoda (as everyone says in India and Pakistan), we mean Allah Almighty. Is what she said Kufr (disbelief)? If it is Kufr, then what should.. More

  • Saying that Allah is not good is disbelief Date: 30-12-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. My Sister said that Allaah does not listen to her and that He is not good. My sister said this in front of me, and I told her to repent, but she refused. She said this because she is upset with our family problems. She is married with a Barelvi man. Is her marriage valid? And what should I tell her to do? Does she need to renew her.. More

  • Not correcting sinner is not disbelief Date: 28-12-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum, Sir. Please tell me, if you see anyone involved in any sin or committing (an act of) disbelief but he does not know about it while I do know that that thing is very serious but at the same time I do not have any courage or dare not to correct him, will I also become a disbeliever in that case? I do hate the sin/disbelief in my heart;.. More

  • Ruling on Muslim who says that Jesus is his god Date: 28-12-2017

    My question is simple: what if a Muslim says, "Jesus is my God"? What will happen? What if the person who says that was a Christian before? What if it is a female and she was emotional and stupid? .. More

  • Keeping needed videos and books that have image of cross Date: 27-12-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I apologize for sending so many questions, but I am confused with the matter of having the cross in my possession. Suppose that I have videos of history or books or any other objects that have a cross in it and I am unable to erase it from some, especially in video form, what do I do? Can I let it be as it will not be displayed everytime.. More

  • Ruling on singing lyrics containing disbelief without knowing their meaning Date: 29-11-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. In India, we have songs that contain disbelief, like "Rab bhi deewana lage", which means, 'Allah is mad about a girl'; and "Tujhme rab dikhta hai sajde sar jhukta hai", which means, 'I see God in you, and I will prostate to you.' So what is the ruling on one who sings these songs without knowing its meaning? .. More

  • Fearing remark might be disbelief Date: 13-11-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I have a desperate question; I fear that my sister may have fallen into major disbelief. We were discussing Islam with a group of people, when one of them said, " Muhammad, sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam,is my role model, to which my sister replied "Why do you not go marry a six-year-old?" I know that what she said was certainly haram,.. More

  • Joking about sins does not necessarily mean apostasy Date: 1-11-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum scholars. Having fun with religious concepts does not necessarily entail apostasy, does it? I have a family member who is religious, and he is funny, and from time to time, he makes jokes in which religious concepts may be involved but without intending to mock them. For instance, he said to me, “Had I known that you had money in.. More

  • Loving non-Muslim country Date: 29-10-2017

    What do you say about loving a non m-Muslim country if one is sitting in a muslim land? There may be just and upright people among the disbelievers who do not fight the Muslims. So if one loves their country or says that their country is beautiful, what do you say about this? May Allah reward you with the best rewards. .. More

  • Believing Darwin's theory about origin of man amounts to disbelief Date: 17-10-2017

    Is belief that humans evolved out of monkeys a belief that takes one out of the fold of Islam? I have seen Islamic websites refute this theory, but I have not seen any that say that believing in this is an act of disbelief, so I am confused. .. More

  • Attempting to reconcile Theory of Evolution with Islamic beliefs Date: 16-10-2017

    Respected Shaykh. What is the status of someone who, in an attempt to reconcile the theory of evolution with the Islamic narrative of human origins, states that homo sapiens (modern humans) descended from other hominid species (all the while believing that all of this happened by Allah's Will and Power), and that thereafter, these homo sapiens went..

  • Regarding Burdah poem as praise of Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam Date: 12-10-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I asked this question before but I was told to clarify it. So, basically, I wanted to know whether if one read some defenses or justifications of the Qasida Burda, accepting it as simply praise for the Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam,instead of considering it to be excessive praise, and then read fatwas on the latter..

  • Ruling on Muslim who believes in Darwin's theory of evolution Date: 10-10-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I had submitted a question asking whether a person who believed in the theory of evolution, or if he believed that Adam, peace be upon him, arrived through the process of evolution, is a Muslim or not? Although I received an answer to my question saying that Darwinism contradicted Islam, I received no direct answer saying that someone.. More
